The man who created arcade smash hit mega man is back with a new take on the 8 to 16 bit classic era of gaming.
His new title is Mighty Number 9, and although it looks similar to mega man, it is definitely its successor.
You play as Beck, the 9th in a line of powerful robots and the only one not infected by a virus that has caused mechanized creatures to go bezerk.
(Looks like mega man, but it is so much more)
It’s all about running, jumping and transforming and is a bucket load of fun.
Like the latter Mega Man titles you gain abilities from taking down the boss enemies. The game has suffered slight delays due to the co op network feature but If you love the classics, Mighty Number 9 is for you. Expect it soon.
